LAPRF Honored as 2014 Top-Rated Nonprofit

Great NonprofitsThe Los Angeles Police Reserve Foundation (LAPRF) has been honored with the prestigious 2014 Top-Rated Award by GreatNonprofits, the leading provider of user reviews about nonprofit organizations. The award was based on the large number of positive reviews that the Foundation received, written by volunteers, donors and clients.

While the Top-Rated Awards run through the end of October, the LAPRF was part of the inaugural group to qualify for the year. In addition, the Foundation has been added to the GreatNonprofits #GivingTuesday Guide — an interactive guide to top nonprofits throughout the years. Look for this near the holidays.

“Savvy donors want to see the impact of their donations more than ever,” says Perla Ni, CEO of GreatNonprofits. “People with direct experience with the Los Angeles Police Reserve Foundation have voted that the organization is making a real difference.”

Being on the Top-Rated list gives donors and volunteers confidence in the organization. The reviews by volunteers, clients and other donors show our on-the-ground results. This award is a form of recognition by the community.
